Commons at Newpark

Summit County

One of the major appellants against the Commons at Newpark project says he accepts the decision by county council on Wednesday, which affirmed the plan.

Chris Eggleton says he wishes success for the Commons project, since that could mean success for Newpark and Kimball Junction.

On Wednesday, the County Council unanimously overturned an appeal against the Commons project and upheld an approval from the County Manager. The proposal calls for a building with seven townhomes, up to 43 feet, west of the Newpark amphitheater.

The Summit County Council on Wednesday voted unanimously in favor of the Commons at Newpark proposal. They upheld the County Manager’s approval of the project, and turned down an appeal against the Commons.

Council members said they were not enthusiastic about the plan, but it is not specifically prohibited under the Development approval for Newpark.

The developers, Gary Crandall and his sons Matt and Ryan, propose a building over 40 feet high with seven townhomes, located on a site west of the Newpark amphitheater, which the Crandalls also own.

Summit County council members are expecting the next time they are together with a full roster will be their September 12th session.

At that time, they will consider a decision on the Commons at Newpark, a proposed four-story residential building on the last undeveloped piece of ground in that sector.

An appellant group challenged the approval given to the Commons project by county manager Tom Fisher. Council’s second hearing on Wednesday went for two-and-a-half hours, as they heard arguments from both sides.

After hearing further arguments over the proposed Commons at Newpark project, the Summit County Council Wednesday put off a decision, for various reasons.

Given the council’s schedule, it looks like the next time they can meet, with the full council present, will be in three weeks on September 12th.

The proposal from developers Gary, Matt and Ryan Crandall, for a building with seven townhomes to the west of the Newpark amphitheater, got approvals earlier this year from the Snyderville Commission and county manager Tom Fisher.

In their regular session on Wednesday, the major item for the Summit County Council will be possibly deciding an appeal against the Commons at Newpark project.

Meanwhile, county manager Tom Fisher said another appeal has been filed against one of his decisions—this time related to a project in Promontory—and will be headed to the council soon.

After a lengthy discussion on Wednesday, Summit County Council members are still deliberating the issue over an appeal of the Commons at Newpark development.

The developers from the Crandall family have proposed a four-story seven-townhome project near the Newpark amphitheater, which appellants claim the proposal doesn’t conform with Town Center principles.

Council member Roger Armstrong said a decision can be difficult when the issue is based on a particular Development Agreement, not a zone. He said they’re looking for more information and analysis.

The Summit County Council Wednesday did not come to a decision, after hearing an appeal against the Commons at Newpark project.

Developer Gary Crandall and his sons Matt and Ryan have proposed the Commons as a building with seven townhomes, up to 43 feet high, just west of the Newpark Plaza.

The project got a positive vote from the Snyderville Commission earlier this year and received a final approval in June from County Manager Tom Fisher.

The Commons at Newpark project received an approval earlier this summer, but that's been appealed. The dispute goes before the Summit County Council during its Wednesday session.

The council meets at the Coalville Courthouse Wednesday and the appeal of the Commons takes place at about 4:30 pm.

 The plan, from developer Gary Crandall and his sons, would create a building with seven townhouse units, up to four stories, located to the west of the Newpark Plaza. Although the parcel was originally planned as commercial, the project now is residential.

The proposed Commons at Newpark development is still the center of controversy. A group of appellants has filed a challenge against the approval given to the plan by the county manager.

The project, proposed by Newpark developer Gary Crandall and his sons Matt and Ryan, would create a building of over 10,000 square feet in a parcel to the west of the Newpark amphitheater. The project, comprised of seven townhomes, got a positive recommendation from the Snyderville Planning Commission last winter.

On June 28th, county manager Tom Fisher gave an approval to the project.

Snyderville Planning Commissioner Chuck Klingenstein says that the Commons at Newpark project will come back before them after the first of the year. And while the development has provoked some fiery debate, he says the Planning Commission is seeking a good compromise for everybody. Rick Brough has more.
